T-Mobile to boast no less than 24 data devices in 2011, including many tablets4
Given that the dual-core LG Optimus 2X smartphone might be heading to Big Magenta, next in line should be the 8.9" LG Optimus Pad, which the company claims to be "better than the iPad... and surpisingly productive". To cite some more LG cheer: "While the existing tablet PCs focus on e-book, movie, music and the Internet functions, LG's new tablet PC is jumping into the market with more diverse contents based on powerful functions." What will those be remains a mystery, at least until CES next week.
The 7" Dell Streak 7 has been all but confirmed by spotting it with a T-Mobile logo on the back, and we are certain some of those upcoming tablets will sport HSPA+ connectivity to take advantage of T-Mobile's 4G network, which is supposed to hit theoretical 42Mbps by the end of 2011. Other than tablets, the 24 count should be reached with an assorted variety of MiFi hotspots, USB modems, netbooks, laptops and the like.
